Design is a magical process, replete with rejections that lead to satisfaction. I so enjoyed working through this course as Frasier's final form evolved.
So too, I became reacquainted with a touchstone in our ancestors' quilting, hand stitching. As in Cathie's piece ("Texture by Two" - chronicled in the July archives), this motif became a key element in my designs. The cadence of the stitch is so soothing -- a nice antidote to the multitasking of our world outside of art. I am happy to be reacquainted with you, Grandma Gans.
